Social and Environmental Impact


After a six-month trial in 2023, Portage & Main Press/HighWater Press (PMP/HWP) has moved to a permanent four-day workweek, with the offices closed on Fridays.

Research by 4-Day Week Global shows that a shorter workweek can reduce employee stress and burnout, contribute to gender equality, and even increase sales and productivity.

This change is part of our ongoing commitment to employee well-being and our dedication to publishing great books while supporting our creators. By implementing a four-day workweek, we aim to offer more rest and personal development time for our team while maintaining our high standards by focusing on the work that truly matters.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we embrace a more sustainable and fulfilling work environment.
